Preventing family homelessness starts with systematic change, which is why City Mission participates in advocacy with other organizations working on anti-poverty campaigns.

City Mission staff partners with many Massachusetts agencies working to pass legislation that will prevent family homelessness. We participate in lobby days on Beacon Hill, email our constituents regarding legislative updates, and share urgent calls to action on our Facebook page.  To learn more, like us and sign up for our email list here.

We recently hosted a webinar series that delved into the causes and consequences of family homelessness, explained various state programs, and provided advocacy insights. We believe that informing community members like yourself on the status of family homelessness in Massachusetts is the first step to ending this crisis.
